Tooth Pain, Tooth Sensitivity After Filling

Are you experiencing unexplained tooth pain that has lasted longer than a day or two? If so, it could be a symptom of a serious dental condition. Once you arrive, we’ll gently examine the area and provide you with pain relief, if you need it. We may also take digital x‑rays to get a better picture of your teeth and gums.

What are the most common reasons that people need emergency dental care?

Sudden Tooth Pain – Significant tooth pain with no apparent cause results in many an emergency dental visit. Tooth pain should never be ignored. Many serious conditions can cause tooth pain including:

  • Cavities that have penetrated deep into the tooth
  • Advanced gum disease
  • An abscessed tooth
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • An impacted tooth

 

These conditions should be treated promptly to prevent further damage to the tooth or spreading of the infection.

Chipped or Fractured Teeth – Chipped or broken teeth can be caused by sudden trauma to the mouth or by simply biting down on a hard object. Sometimes this happens because you had a cavity and didn’t know it, and the internal structure has been weakened. If possible, keep the chip or piece that broke off of the tooth and bring it with you to your appointment.

Lost Teeth – Whether your tooth was knocked out due to an injury or you lost a tooth for no apparent reason, losing a tooth is a dental emergency. In some cases, we can replace the tooth if we can get to it fast enough, but sometimes a lost tooth will have to be replaced with a dental implant or a bridge.

Our chances of saving the tooth are best if you retrieve the tooth and quickly rinse it with cool water, avoiding the root area. Try to replace the tooth back in the socket, but don’t force it. If the tooth can’t be replaced in the socket, keep it in a glass of milk. Call our office immediately.

Knocked-Out or Broken Teeth

Knocked-out or broken teeth aren’t just cosmetic issues. They can actually lead to dangerous infections that could affect your entire body. If you or your child have suffered a cracked tooth, knocked out tooth, or broken tooth, call us right away.

Broken Dental Fillings & Crowns

At Comfort Smiles, we pride ourselves on using only the most durable materials to create our restorations. That said, all restorations do need to be replaced and can break when weakened over time. If yours breaks or loosens, call us right away for further instructions.

Dental Abscesses

Dental abscesses are the results of untreated infections that have developed just below the gum line. During your emergency dentist appointment, our dentists will assess the abscess and may recommend an emergency tooth extraction or an emergency root canal, if necessary.
